In late 2021, Capital One opened its first lounge at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Now, nearly two years later, the second Capital One lounge finally opened at Washington-Dulles (IAD) on September 7, 2023. It offers food, drinks, design features, and art from local businesses.

Although it's just the second location, Capital One has plans for several further lounge expansions in the future.

So what are these new lounges? And how do you get in? In this guide, we take a look at Capital One Lounges, what they offer, where to find them, and how to access them.

Basics of Airport Lounges

Airport lounges are exclusive facilities located within an airport and typically require some kind of membership to enter. Some lounges also offer day passes to any travelers willing to pay for one-time access. Airport lounges offer more comfortable seating, feature unique amenities, and provide travelers with a more enjoyable space away from the hustle and bustle of the airport.

While many travelers know programs like Priority Pass and the American Express Global Lounge Collection, Capital One and now Chase Sapphire Lounges are newcomers in the lounge arena.

Credit Cards With Capital One Lounge Access

Any traveler can access Capital One Lounges. However, select Capital One credit cards offer travelers complimentary or discounted access. Here is an overview of the Capital One Lounge access policy:

MembershipPricing & Guest Policy

Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card and Capital One Spark Miles for Business cardholdersAccess at no cost twice per year then $45 per visit. All guests are $45 each.

However, if you only plan on making a few visits a year to Capital One Longes, both the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card and the Capital One Spark Miles for Business should have you covered.

Capital One Lounge Locations

The first Capital One Lounge location opened in Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) on November 4, 2021. Over the past two years, this lounge has grown increasingly popular as more travelers have found out about it — sometimes leading to waiting lists to get in.

Now, the second Capital One lounge opened its doors in Washington D.C.'s Dulles Airport (IAD) on September 7, 2023. This lounge is open from 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern Time.

Capital One Lounge Features

In recent years, there has been a push among lounge operators to make each location unique with locally inspired decor and amenities. Capital One Lounges are no different, with each lounge offering a slightly different selection of amenities.

That being said, here are the amenities guests can expect at Capital One Lounges:

  • High-speed Wi-Fi
  • Grab-and-go food
  • Tableside dining
  • Fully-stocked bar

Capital One Landing

Capital One had previously announced plans to add just two new lounge locations at Washington-Dulles and Denver International Airport. However, in late 2022, this was expanded with the announcement of “Landing” lounges at Washington National (DCA) and New York-LaGuardia (LGA). The Capital One Landing is a new lounge concept centered around a premium dining experience.

While less is known about the upcoming Capital One Landing lounges, these lounges are likely to have fewer amenities compared to standard Capital One Lounges. Instead, Capital One Landing lounges will be more of a restaurant-style lounge space.

Final Thoughts

The ability to access all of the Centurion Lounge locations is a major selling point of The Platinum Card® from American Express. Now, other card issuers are starting to venture (pun intended) into airport lounges for their premium cardholders.

Capital One's first lounge operates in Terminal D at Dallas–Fort Worth, and the second location is just past PreCheck in the Main Terminal at Washington-Dulles. Additional lounge locations are set to open in 2023. Once this first round of lounges is open, Capital One will certainly be much more competitive in the airport lounge space.

Have you visited the Capital One Lounge at DFW yet? Will you be passing through IAD soon to check out this new location? Let us know your thoughts.

  • Seattle please!!! We desperately need good lounges in the PNW! I almost got the Amex Platinum just for the SeaTac centurion lounge

  • I’ve used some of these lounges, many are very nice

  • Chicago O’Hare definitely needs one, and not in the international terminal. There are no Priority Pass lounges in the domestic terminals – your only choices are American, United and Delta. And you have to be flying that airline to use the lounge, and has some sort of lounge access. I wish they would put a Priority Pass lounge there (there are two in the international terminal) as well as a Capital One.

  • I was tempted to sign up for this card but with so few limited lounges currently available and not available at PHL, I will not have any use for it at this time. I think the only benefit for me is the 100k bonus. I am leaning toward Amex plat since we have a centurian lounge at PHL.
